I was also thinking that because you have black as a primary color you might consider doing your panel lines in a cool accent color. like that glowing blue color. That would define panel lines much more as you cant see them too well where the black meets the grey. Just an idea.

I'm liking the paint job, but as others have said it's very understated. A splash of colour to make it pop would go a long way.

With the Riptide getting a few marks here and there but throughout the model, it brings all the red parts together into the whole. With the gun barrel being the only red part of the Hammerhead, it stands out quite a bit and the Crisis suits have the same problem.
Again, that is my take on it. I really like the Riptide though...
